■The First Thanksgiving was celebrated to give thanks to God for helping the pilgrims survive the brutal winter. That feast lasted three days providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Indians and the  menu featured turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
■U.S. President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving Day a national holiday in 1863. However in 1941 President Franklin Roosevelt established the current date for observance, the fourth Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day.
